Today, she has a wonderful life and believes she has outrun her past. But a mysterious figure is searching for her and threatens to destroy her happiness.

    Overall

    i usually like lisa jackson, but this was so bad i couldn't wait for it to end. she must have pulled it out of the attic from her college years.
    the characters had little depth and the whole story was just 'hokey' for lack of a better word.....way below her writing level.

    Facing a tight deadline on a computer security contract, Aimée responds to a telephone call from a stranger that leads her to an abandoned infant in a courtyard on the Ile Saint-Louis. She brings the baby home with her, calls her Stella, and awaits contact from the mother. But days pass, and no one reclaims the infant. Meanwhile, a group of environmental protestors is trying to stop the government from entering into a contract with an oil company notorious for pollution.

    i've listened to most of the 'aimee' books by cara black and while they weren't great books they were at least good. this one though was so disappointing i almost didn't finish. it was slow and boring.
    if i listen to another one of her books i'll get it through the online library like i did her others and not waste one of my credits on audible.
